P 86 Sorrow and Hope: Preaching at Funerals

In contrast to recent decline in baptisms and church weddings, the role of the Christian minister at funerals continues to be of great significance.

This guide to best practice looks at the challenges and opportunities of preaching at funerals in the context of common responses to death, the nature of the biblical hope of resurrection, and the liturgical setting of the new Common Worship service. With comments on possible readings and advice on handling the different elements, it is an essential handbook for this ministry.
